I’m guessing then Nascar is not at all physically demanding? Can’t see 70 or even 60 year old racing F1 cars at speed.
Exactly how is pass on a broken car be praised so highly? perhaps Petrov on Button should be considered too then?
What is so sensitive about that information? Who doesn’t know cars are set up differently and higher drag is expected.
I wonder more why he posted that. Was that his attempt to blame the engineers for not knowing that graph before quali?
Best Driver: Vettel or Alonso. Vettel for great pace on 30 lap old tires. Alonso for quick in lap when it mattered.
Worst Driver: Maldonado
Best Team: Redbull
Worst Team: McLaren for not ensuring Button does not come out behind Kovi, slow pit stop for Hamilton and not telling Ham how close Vettel was.
Best Overtake: none
Best Funny- moment: Vergne on inters
Most Surprising Result: Button not making any progress

Special Mention to: Massa and Kovi for good performances
Race Rating: 4/10
I mean it is too conservative, not about pure speed as it was before. Wheel to wheel action is also not quite real.
I will not agree with that. Development is required to achieve speed, nothing else. Lately all teams do it sustain speed through any possible means that are not yet banned. I can understand reducing speed through safety measures but for excitement factor, F1 can do better.
I can agree with engine durability but because teams are in charge of this area of development, they can achieve durability without compromising performance. Tires on the other hand are limiting performance and are out of teams’ control.
Pirellies are awful tires in my opinion, half way through the race you could see 80% of the track covered with marbles. Considering every driver is saving tires, that’s pretty bad. May be next year we’ll fuel car’s lighter too and see how far each driver car get?
If you want excitement, not that we need it but if you must do it artificially, make 3 stops mandatory and give drivers tires that can last 1000km. This sport if about going fast, not saving fuel/tires/engines and f*cking planet.
